After dating for nearly two years, Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner have broken up. I can't believe this. I thought they were going to last forever. These guys were basically the next Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
Can you sense my non-enthusiasm?
A source tells Life & Style that “they decided to end their relationship. It wasn't working out, and they wanted to go their separate ways.”
What couldn't have been working out? Was Avril not okay with Brody's step-relation to the Kardashians? Was Brody sick of Avril's circa 2002 boyish punk rawk style? “Dress like a woman...woman!” He maybe said.
Apparently Avril wanted to tie the knot and Brody did not.
“She wanted to settle down, but he wasn't exactly ready,” says the source.
Avril has been married once before to Sum 41 front man, Deryck Whibley. They were married in 2006 and divorced three years later. Basically, Lavigne was gearing up for “walk down the isle” part 2 and Brody was like “whoooaaaa, I'm still waiting to hear on a sequel to 'The Hills.'”
They've been having problems since this summer when Avril went on tour and was gone all the time.
“It put a strain on their relationship,” adds the source.
Maybe they rushed into things? Avril started dating Brody immediately after splitting from Whibley. Also, aren't they the most miss-matched couple ever? Where did they meet? Was Avril performing at a launch party for “Bromance?” Did he spill beer on her? The world will never know.
